Safeguarding at Tollgate Community Junior School

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all staff, volunteers, parents and children to share this commitment.

We have policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment. See our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy. 

We may need to share information and work with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.

We will discuss our concerns with their parents or carers first unless this would risk the child's welfare. If we cannot contact the parents or carers, we will ask Children’s Services for advice.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent agenda to counter radicalisation & extremism.


You must not take photos or video recordings in school unless you have permission from the school.

Operation Encompass is a Police initiative, to inform the school within 24 hours, when there has been an incident of Domestic Violence or Abuse which involves a pupil at Tollgate. 

When the Police attend an incident, and there are children present, they will notify the school, via email, that the incident occurred. At Tollgate, this is sent to the Safeguarding Team, Mrs Fegan, Mr Dennis and Mr Walsh. 

The information shared with the school will be limited: no details of the incident, merely that there was an incident, the time and venue and that Police attended.

By informing the school of this, we can be better equipped to support your child, whether that means additional monitoring and TLC, if they are presenting as upset, or perhaps a more generous interpretation of the behaviour and sanctions policy, if they are presenting with challenging behaviour.

The school will not contact the parents. Should you wish to discuss an incident, please contact the office and ask to speak to Mrs Fegan.
